If the University cancels Spring Break, they might as well hand out condoms while they're at it. If they insist students attend classes during Spring Break, double that number. Merry Christmas! Literally.
Also, the Flames MBB should be recalled and removed from playing in the NCAA Tournament, because...FEAR. Fear of the fear of what is basically a form of the flu we didn't predict. Irrational fear. For "their own safety" and because "We know better." Fear of the flu that those 80+ are more affected by and almost no one below 60 is. Over 50% have recovered from the Corona flu already and less than 0.035974002% have died of the 119,000 infected...worldwide. Flee! Flee for your lives! Even if the numbers are inaccurate, even widely, what is your fear gauge? My parents are in their mid-70's, one of them far more susceptible than the other. My scale is a five and even I think I'm over blowing it with a little over 1,000 confirmed cases in the US. Times that by a 40,000 and I'm still not above a five overall.
CoronaVirus is real. It's not, nor will it be (unless a curse from God in which case we can't do anything other than repent and deal with the consequences), worthy of the levels of panic it is at and rising even further from.
Let the kids go home. Let them go to the beach. They're far more likely to catch an STI than the CoronaVirus in Daytona or Northern Virginia or Cabo or Columbus, OH or anywhere in all 50 states, or the world at large. They are even less likely to die from it or have any long lasting repercussions, other than the bonus of immunity to it and possibly its additional strains.
Supposedly exercise and sunshine may help...maybe coitus under the sun is good for us? See how ridiculous this all is?! Not that there's anything wrong with that. Exercise and sunshine is good for basically everything except skin cancer! Eat foods that are good for you, drink water, don't smoke, get some good sleep, wash your hands, avoid public transportation (not a real problem in America unless you live somewhere super liberal where you basically can't drive/bike/walk), don't sneeze on people, if you feel sick try not to infect anyone else, don't shake someone's hand if you just coughed/sneezed in it. Wow, the same advice we are given for common decency... and basically every woe known to mankind whether life saving or not. Nothing has changed!
If the students love their elderly friends/family, hopefully they'll be smart enough not to interact with them in person. Shockingly, kids are better at making more rational decisions than some adults are when sick. Heck, the hormones actually keep them away from the elderly typically.
Oh, and as a nation, we kill more people everyday via abortion than CoronaVirus has killed worldwide...so there's that. Now if only Jerry Jr was fighting that fight...? Imagine the possibilities.
If the US self quarantines itself for two weeks: Russia will move further into Ukraine, China will move troops into Hong Kong, Iran will cross into Iraq, Israel will be forced to respond, the Saudi's seize Yemen, China will blockade Singapore etc etc
Your worst RISK nightmare, other than being a European power invading Russia in winter, will come to pass.
